Penarium is set in a sinister circus arena, where contestants, much like Gladiators of old, are forced to entertain a sadistic crowd. In this frantic 2D arena arcade game, you take on the role of our quirky antihero Willy who, to survive, is forced to run, jump and avoid an array of killer death-traps. Succeed and Willy will become the Champion of Penarium. Fail and he will die in a most horrendous way, much to the delight of the baying crowd.

Editors’ Notes

This pixelated platformer’s got it all. It’s packed with inventive stages, it’s easy to control, and its twisted story kept us coming back for more—even as the levels go from difficult to downright dastardly. Surviving this sadistic circus extravaganza is insanely fun, insanely hard, and frankly just kind of insane.

Great Frustrating Game

I mean that in a good way. It's a fun, addicting and fast paced 2D puzzle red. My only critique is that when you play on an iPad. The LEFT/RIGHT controls need to be further placed from the center of the screen. I know there are options, but I still feel like I'm playing with the buttons to close to the center. It becomes an annoyance.

Extremely addictive!

Finally a game that is pure. No in app purchases, no commercials, just earn the coins by playing. Sadly it is extremely addictive and my social life suffers. But I have Willy, good old Willy.
